Ram Kumar, an engineering graduate, was arrested in Tirunelveli. Kumar, a native of Shencottah near Tirunelveli, was staying in Choolaimedu area in the city where Swathi had resided for quite some time.

He was taken to a hospital for treatment after he allegedly attempted to commit suicide, police said.

Ramki, who’s followed by PM Modi had made desperate attempts to create communal tension by falsely claiming Swathi’s murderer was a Muslim

The motive of the killing is being investigated and other probe-related details in the case are being awaited, police said.

Swathi, employed with software giant Infosys, was found dead with cut injuries on her face and neck around 6.30 AM on a platform in Nungambakkam railway station on June 24.

The arrest of Kumar has also come as huge embarrassment for the supporters of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who had taken to Twitter to allege that Swathi’s killer was a Muslim, who had murdered her in an ISIS style.

Jantakareporter.com was the first to report the tweet by one Ramki, whose claim to fame includes being followed by PM Modi.

He had tweeted, “Daylight ISIS type beheading of a Hindu IT Professional By a Muslim in Chennai. #JusticeForSwathi Why Media Silent?.”

  1. THE RSS HINDUTVA TERRORISTS TRIED TO FRAME INNOCENT MUSLIMS BY SPREADING LIES IN SOCIAL MEDIA WITH THIS MURDER. IMMEDIATELY WE MUST SHOW THE BJP CHADDI TERRORISTS THAT INDIA IS A PLACE WHERE COMMUNAL HARMONY EXISTS. SHAME ON THOSE PEOPLE

  2. Can’t understand why people call him Hindu Muslim. He is a killer and killed a daughter. That’s it. If proved guilty he should be punished. Why some stupid people talk about Modi following someone here. Here a daughter is killed and the criminal must be punished. Get it right my dear idiots.

    • You are confusing the two. Some sanghi idiots alleged that the alleged killer is a Muslim and hence ISIS, LoveJihad etc etc. Now that the police nabbed the culprit, it is very clear who is responsible for spreading rumors for political benefits and who is not.

  3. //The arrest of Kumar has also come as huge embarrassment for the supporters of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who had taken to Twitter to allege that Swathi’s killer was a Muslim, who had murdered her in an ISIS style.// Wow! PM doesn’t give rat’s arse to your article.

  4. This is just confusing. Ramki is a local politician. Just like shyam,ganesh,Arvind,sonu,rinku, tinku, sharad, Mohammed, Adnan, prakash, sam, john, c Vincent, and so on.

    Why the hell was Narendra modi’s name highlighted???? Just because he is one on some million twitter follower of PM????

    Janta ka reporter this is sickular.

    Now don’t blame me to be arrogant cause I am following Arnold Schwarzenegger and Donald Trump on twitter.
